Phang Nga Bay, Phuket – Sea Wind Through Your Vein
We can go to Phang Nga Bay from Phuket, Thailand. There are many travel booths around Soi Bangla Road at Patong Beach, where I stayed, that sell tickets. The ticket price will vary from 1,500 to 3,000 Bath depending on the quality of the trip including the food, type of ship, private tour guide, etc. If you know a local, he or she can help you to get a better rate. Surely, a Thai person can get a particular price for the locals. The tour usually begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m.
On my trip with the family, first, the tour guide led us to a bunch of islands in Phang Nga Bay. Then, they transferred us to a smaller boat so we could get closer to the mountains or into the caves.
The tour operator served us lunch on the boat. However, they separated the whole team into smaller ones in different boats for lunch. In my opinion, the trip would be more fun if they used one of the big boats to do lunch instead of the smaller ones. In that way, everyone can interact with each other while eating. Indeed, getting to know new friends is one of the good things when traveling.
After lunch, the tour guide took us to James Bond Island in Phang Nga Bay. A rock featured there: “The Man with the Golden Gun” from the James Bond series. That was actually an impressive view of the whole landscape around James Bond Island.
Then, we had our free time to enjoy the beach and the sea. The boat took everyone to a nearby island that had a sandy beach with white sand. There were many things to do on that island such as enjoying a cocktail or coconut juice, swimming, playing golf, sitting under a palm tree, or sunbathing to relax.
*woohoo, very exciteddddddd :D*
At around 4:30 p.m. We said goodbye to Phang Nga Bay to come back to the dynamic and lively Phuket nightlife.
